ValuLine High Performance, Point-to-Point Microwave Antenna


Low profile, single-polarized, high performance parabolic shielded antenna
Andrew Solutions VHLP Series antennas are ideal for microwave applications demanding excellent pattern performance where space is at a premium and aesthetics are important
Andrew Solutions specially engineered family of ValuLine Antennas provides exceptional performance and value in a low-profile design. In addition, ValuLine Antennas are designed to easily integrate with radio outdoor units to create a highly reliable, cost-effective transmission solution.

Andrew Solutions designs and engineers a complete range of point point--to to--point microwave antennas that help operators to maximize bandwidth efficiency and increase system reliability while minimizing both capital and operational expenditures. The intelligent design of VHLP antennas combines efficient beam beam--forming capabilities with high gain, all while minimizing frequency congestion. Equipped with a painted reflector, each antenna also features a high effeiciency feed system, a long life radome, and vertical pipe mount. All are engineered and tested to Andrew Andrew s uncompromising standards. Radiation Pattern Envelopes Envelopes For each antenna model, Andrew publishes a complete range of radiation pattern envelopes (RPEs). Each detailed pattern envelope provides an easy easy--to to--read and informative description of how the antenna performs at various frequencies and along specific planes. Copies of the RPEs for each antenna are also on file at various regulatory offices around the world.
